The practice of implementation of the TEMPUS grant in five European countries is analyzed. The hypothesis of the concept of meta-knowledge, knowledge hierarchy, approaches to meta-energetic, and as a result, the mankind’s knowledge is put forward. The practice of implementation of the concepts at Donetsk National Technical University is demonstrated.

Introduction. At the recent TEMPUS day in Ukraine, which took place in Donetsk, one of the members of the English delegation said there were fewer problems between Ukraine and Europe than among European countries themselves.
We think that the meetings like that show that scientists of different countries are the bearers of different cultures. The result of the dialogue in general depends on the cultural integration as the dialogue might not take place. Here is a peculiar example taken from the Internet. One man was travelling about South America. He met the leader of one of the tribes who spitted into man’s face. This act appeared to be a sign of great respect (!). Can you imagine people being greeted in such a way in other countries?! Different European countries have their traditions as to hospitality. We should be aware of them otherwise the dialogue, and more than that, cooperation will never happen in principle. People from European Union are interested in the integration with Ukraine that, in particular, is followed by receiving of grants.
We have not found the solution of the problem as to Europe to come. It could be the leading idea of a new grant. Meanwhile every delegation has to solve the problems straight off with immediate improvisation. It is not the best way as far as the prepared impromptu is known to the best one.
To put it mildly, culture is paid little attention to in Ukraine. The papers with the typical titles “Put in a Good Word for Poor Culture” are often published. Sometimes this problem is kept silent about. According to Prof. E.V. Mortyakova, who was working on the grant, the social economy proved that it was impossible in principle to raise the level of life in the country without raising the level of its culture. We would appreciate Elena Vladimrovna’s referring to the publication (to obey the scientific character of the paper). But we trust our colleague and are grateful for her at least having educated us. Besides, she beautified out team and inspired the men to scientific and cultural deeds.
Thus, the experience of the universities of Portsmouth (Great Britain), Cadiz (Spain), Lodz (Poland), and Vladimir (Russia) appeared to be very useful in terms of the cultural integration. This is an additional result of the project that is to be developed. To begin with let us have an example. During the last seminar taking place in Lodz our coordinators organized a visit to the Concert Hall. After the concert the leader of our delegation made the following speech at the evening meeting: “We just came back from the Concert Hall named after Sergey Rubinstein who had been born and worked in this city. We were listening to the concert of Sergey Rakhmaninov who had been born not far from Vladimir (Russia), and the delegation of the city is present at the meeting now. We have recently been at one of the seminars in Portsmouth (Great Britain). We were brought to the Concert Hall where the first concert of the legendary English group the Pink Floyd had taken place. When we were in Spain we were playing the guitar and singing with a Spanish guy. These were Spanish, Ukrainian and the Pink Floyd’s songs. “Besame Mucho” was the hit of the evening meetings as well as the songs of Che Guevara remembered by the engineers of the electric power stations we had visited. This brought us together immediately. When we meet in Donetsk at the final seminar on the project we will sure be singing Russian songs emphasizing our spirit, Polish songs we have been learnt at the Polish Engineering Faculty of DonNTU. We will bring all delegations to the Concert Hall named after Sergey Prokofyev who was born and working in the region. Long live Europe and its future which is being created by the project grant. We are members of the crew of the ship called “Europe to Come”! We work together. The course of our ship and whether it reaches the goal and does not go down the sea of problems depends on every cabin (Polish, Russian, Ukrainian, English, and Spanish). The appearance of a new community of people – the scientists who show how not only Europe to come but the world should interact – is an additional result of the project grant. We should work not looking back at the borders, the political, racial, religious, financial and other discrepancies. It is all covered by the concept of culture which includes (as its forms) religion, economy, science etc. Long live our crew that not only works well and is an example for Europe to come, but also is the orchestra in which every delegation plays its own part! We think the symphony which was being played within the project is nice and it will sound in our hearts forever. Long live our crew! We appreciate the fate for giving us such a chance!” The speech was met by applause. Despite of any decision on the project work which will be made by the European Commission we think its result is positive. The European Commission approved the progress report on the project and we are sure in our future.
Now, a brief summary of what we learnt in this aspect from each of the countries. Let us start with Russia. Russian is our native language, so we had no problems with it. We learnt much from our Russian colleagues, partners, and simply friends. We visited Vladimir and Suzdal- the gems of Golden Ring of Russia which is a cultural heritage of the country. We saw the murals of Andrey Rublyov in the Vladimir Cathedral, kissed holy relics in both Suzdal and Vladimir’s churches. We think that the spiritual, cultural contact took place. All the delegations were interviewed on TV (on the invitation of our Russian friends) and later on were asked to sing a song. We sang a song in the native language for each of the delegations (later on it was broadcast). So, it was a part of our common symphony.
Portsmouth. English traditions are always valuable to us. We visited the Chelsea’s stadium and took our photos at the picture of the Ukrainian footballer Andrey Shevchenko who was playing for Chelsea then. You can see the photo on the site of the project. At weekend Dr Terry Oliver (one of the Honourary Doctors of DonNTU) brought us to the famous Stonehenge where a professor of our University A. Anoprienko delivered a lecture on archeo-modelling to English archeologists and told them why, on his opinion, Stonehenge had been built. Then he showed Woodenhenge to the English colleagues who were accompanying us (they were astonished by the knowledge of the professor). Then our delegation was invited to the English Club (not every Englishman has an access there) where the leader of the English delegation said: “I am English, but this person (he pointed to Prof. Anoprienko) was teaching me during the excursion!” All the present nodded in approval. So, we had a cultural contact in this country, too. We recollect not all the facts in the paper, only the most memorable ones.
Spain. We remember our visit to the Department of Culture very well. It inspired us to establish the University of Culture at our alma mater. It is an additional result of the project work. 50 years ago we had the Institute of Culture, now we work on the following directions (we found out about them in Spain): the world cinema masterpieces, the world painting masterpieces, new trends in science, musical and theatre trends. We think this work is to be developed.
There was one more important cultural event in the frameworks of the project grant: the Ukrainian co-coordinator was rewarded the diploma of the international Roerich Prize in the Hermitage. But we will talk about it later.

Gaining the meta-knowledge through the Internet. To understand a problem we should move it away. The more the distance is, the better the matter is seen. As we say, the great is seen at a distance. V.V. Pak (the Department of mathematics of DonNTU was called after him) wrote about it. This great mathematician and scientist first spoke about it at the meeting with power-engineering students at the Department of Industrial Companies Power Supply in 1997. There are some pictures taken at the meeting. The administration of the Faculty always created the conditions for the implementation of new ideas and useful unusual innovations. It is not a surprise that it is the Power Engineering Faculty (PEF)of DonNTU that established the workshop with participation of outstanding scientists of nowadays. The workshop created the growth medium for the ideas and their discussion and later resulted in a number of projects: Moscow inter-disciplinary conference, the University of Culture restored after 50 years of oblivion. By the way, this structure was presented as an additional result of the work at the European grant TEMPUS (JEP-27085-2006) in which the authors of the paper took an active part. The investigations showed that it was impossible to raise the level of economics without the raise of the culture level. The role of the PEF as the founder and leading executor of the project and ideas implementing it is vivid. So, the first postulate is as follows: the more the distance we move away is the more accurate the forecast is. The second postulate was expressed by an amazing Ukrainian scientist G.S. Tesler in “New Cybernetics” /1/: «There two important to us results in the books of Gödel- impossibility of the mathematical argument of consistency for any rather wide system (energetic fits this definition) which includes all arithmetic in the frames of the system, and existence of the principle of limitedness of the possibilities of axiomatic approach. Not a single solution of the arithmetic system can make it complete. Both of these contradictions can be solved only on the basis of meta-theories and met-approach. Though the results are proved for arithmetic they, as it turned out quite often, have common methodological character and can be applied to the systems of any nature » /2/.
Knowledge hierarchy. What is knowledge? According to its definition “knowledge is the ordered collection of new characteristics of the subject, world, and their interrelations presented in the form of the particular meta-text. The knowledge does the transformation of fragmented images into the systematized valid form and keeping of all that can be saved, transmitted and developed. The problem of knowledge, the structure, appearance, specific character of its perception, cognition and out-coming of new knowledge ( creativity) is a philosophical, methodological, natural-and scientific, humanitarian and applied problem which is almost the most difficult one» /2/. In this paper we offer the hypothesis of the knowledge hierarchy: information-knowledge-Meta-knowledge. The usual unstructured information is the basis on which the knowledge (let us call it the applied one or necessary for the everyday life – earning daily bread) is formed. The knowledge from the capital letter is the knowledge that gives a chance to find the way to the Eternity. It is finding of meta-knowledge historically given to the mankind through the prophets and Teachers. The knowledge was obtained through the insight one of the states of consciousness which is being thoroughly examined. Jacob Bohme, a shoemaker, William Blake, a semiliterate engraver, uneducated prophets Ezekiel and St John the Theologian with his frightening Apocalypse the uneducated person K.E. Ciolkowski after whom the Scientific Academy was named had the insights like that. Let us also recollect Edgar Cayce and John Keely /3/. This is the way of cognition of all outstanding people as well as the energy of all the times and nations of Nikola Tesla. “The Space models the face of the Earth”,- said V.I. Vernadski the portrait of whom is in the office of DonNTU’s Rector.
Meta-energetic We have written about the phenomenon of N.Tesla in the proceedings of PEF several times / 4, 5/. He was not the only one among the engineers. John Keely /6/ was a genius in mechanical engineering and had his own unique as to its inner essence principle which allowed him to direct and control the energy of the special air. He succeeded in bringing it down to the earth more than any of the mortals living in his century though he was not initiated into the final Mysteries. Though his devices worked on the air force, Keely’s own psychic energy of the inventor was the “trigger” putting it into action. The achievement must be considered the prototype of the far destined to the mankind possibility to get the energy not from the planetary interior but from the Space depths. That is why John Keely and N. Tesla can be called the Messengers of the Future. An ordinary person is keen to know why this cannot be repeated now. The answer is as follows: “The representatives of the modern Fifth race who are too deep in the substance were not allowed to use (especially on the commercial basis) the spiritual spatial energy as because of its limitless destroying and creative power they can expose themselves and other people and the life on the planet to danger» /7/. N. Tesla actuated the air out of which he got the energy for his engines in some different way. This is a complicated and delicate issue. Whether the mankind will pass from the usual energetic to the meta-energetic (the term is introduced below) which is the nonfuel ecologically pure energetic of the future depends on its solving. Many people living on the Earth planet dream about it. It is real. According to history the ideas and inspiration for technologies were got from science fiction. The majority of them are implemented into products (flights to the Moon, robots, the submarine, the Internet) etc. DonNTU’s contribution to the meta-knowledge understanding. We wrote about it at the beginning of the paper. It was absolutely vivid in 2008 when one of the representatives of the PEF was working at the Internet resource devoted to the perception of this meta-knowledge. He was doing it under the supervision of the Head of the Department, Dean, and staff of DonNTU. First the material was accumulated and discussed at forums and different related projects. There are more than twenty of them. The history and scientific explanation to it are given in the paper /8/. The project work started in 1991. In 1997 within the project Oriflamme http://roerich.com/ the electron library on the synthesis of science, religion, and philosophy was noticed in the network. It got Ukrainian awards and some international ones (in 2008)/9/ that proves the recognition of the meta-knowledge itself. International experts called it the best world project of 2008 related to the synthesis of religion and philosophy. It was awarded an international diploma in the nomination “Keeping of the Roerich’s Heritage”. The diploma was handed in to a representative of the PEF in the Hermitage. The procedure was carried out by the chairperson of the world-wide known club of the residents of St. Petersburg Michael Piotrowski /10/. There is no doubt this is the merit of the staff of the Department, Faculty and University. For the awarded person it is a huge advance and motivation to work, he so called future support. This work is the contribution into understanding of the idea of the library.
Knowledge of all the mankind. The project “Oriflamme” is the implementation of the ideas of the scientists from St. Petersburg /11/: “Knowledge from the point of view of a separate person is the information on the possible results of the future process in which the given person will take place, on probability of implementation of favourable and unfavourable results, methods, and means of influence on the probability. There are a considerable number of elements of the knowledge of some people that can be good for all people or the majority of them. This knowledge can be considered the knowledge of the mankind. As all people are interested in it, it should be organized to solve three tasks.
1. Maximal (free) access to the knowledge for practically all people through books (libraries), newspapers, radio, television, newsletters, Internet, Synergonet. With these means the survival of some people and the mankind as a complicated self-organizing system is increased.
2. Any man-made structure, which prevents the knowledge dissemination through the force, financial limitations, and false information, only worsens the mankind’s future and, therefore, some of the quanta. From the point of view of the mankind as a wave it is a criminal one. This idea can be the criterion of criminality and totalitarianism of different regimes irrespective the level of democracy they think they have. One of the main, and may be the most important criterion of the power criminality is not only the number of people killed by the power, but also the amount of the general knowledge of the mankind which was not disseminated to all members of the society free of charge.
3. Provision of worth-while life to all people taking part in getting and disseminating of the knowledge necessary for the mankind’s survival as an entire wave. It is a problem of the material and informational existence of scientists, teachers, journalists, cultural workers and religion figures. We think of the meta-knowledge as far as our terminology is concerned. It is partially implemented in the oriflamme project carried out and supported by DonNTU.
Conclusions. We think that a cultural aspect of the activity within the project is considerable. This is the so called fourth mission of universities. But we think it is the mission number one as it gives the direction and vector to all other missions- scientific, academic, and social. Any other integration cannot exist without the cultural one. That is why we are eager to discuss the proposals to some other grants with this idea being the the leading one.
